As well as
new wireless earbuds under its JBL brand, Harman Kardon has announced a new wireless speaker in the Citation 200.

Over Wi-Fi, you can listen in HD quality via the 5in mid-range driver which is accompanied by a 1in tweeter.

smart speaker with support for the Google Assistant. The Citation 200 also features AirPlay and Chromecast. Buy multiple and you can have a multi-room audio setup.
You shouldn’t find it dying on you either thanks to an eight-hour battery life. If not charging on the cradle, the speaker has a USB-C port.
As you would expect from a speaker designed to be moved around a lot, the Citation 200 has a handle at the top. It also benefits from a premium blended wool fabric by Kvadrat with a special coating for easy cleaning and an IPX4 splashproof rating.
The Citation 200 will be
available from October in Winter Gray and Classic Black priced at £299, which is £100 cheaper than the Sonos Move.
